Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

If you can give any of our pubs some support through these difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Introduction

One of the main centres of the Peasants Revolt of 1381. Several "villeins" are subsequently recorded as having been resident in the parish. Five years after the main disturbance the village was again at the centre of another, short lived uprising. The church also has some interesting medieval woodcarvings and glass. The village was recorded in Domesday as "Nortuna".
